Time Magazine's Man Of The Year is...

Ben Bernanke?!

First warmonger Barrack Obama gets the Nobel PEACE Prize of all things and now Time Magazine declares Ben Bernanke to be Man of the Year?!

Has everyone lost their minds?!

And the Wicked Witch of Congress Nancy Pelosi, of all people, was one of the runners up?!

Like Colonel Frank Fitts said in the Movie 'American Beauty':

"THIS COUNTRY IS GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL!"

What, no award for Tiger Wood's infidelity?

Bernanke - why are we still listening to this guy:

Shows how he consistently gets the most important things about the economy wrong.

It's not necessarily an honour to be granted the this title. It has nothing to do with morals or ethics or doing good for the country or the world. The title is granted to the person who has done the most to influence the events of the year. The events needn't be good or positive.

Hitler and Stalin have been granted this title in the past.

Well, if Time Magazine is going on the basis of how much damage to their country a person has done, Bernanke deserves it!

I wonder how much money we owe the Chinese now? (You didn't really think the Fed just began printing bogus money now, did you?)

Honestly I think they shoulda given Man of the Year to Tiger Woods. He thinks with his penis, dates hot women despite being married a an even hotter one, goes after strippers & Hooters waitresses in Clintonesque fashion, and despite them all now being aware he was shining them on... by reports of all the girls that have spoken he's apparently a machine. Plus he gets paid millions to do what other guys pay to do... golf.

Heck, the guy's getting criticism publicly... but half the males in the world secretly think he's a role model.

Yeah, and he's not even in politics! Unbelievable!

Seriously, Time's Man Of The Year should have been Sully Sullenberger, the pilot that made a perfect landing in the Hudson River and saved everyone's rear ends.

That's more than I can say about Bernanke ever doing.
